    Marketing Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in June 2015.

    Interview

    I received a "Congrats!" email saying that I was going to get to participate in their webcam interview. I did that, and the entire time my internet connection was miserable. You get to answer a question and then review your answer before you go to the next question. When I viewed my answers they were completely pixelated and my audio was completely uninterpretable. As each question passed, I got more and more disheartened that my interview would just turnout extremely horrid. I emailed the support team after I submitted the interview and they told me that they fixed my submission so it makes sense. They also said that I would not need to have ask for a retry. I emailed my recruiter to explain what happen and ask for an opportunity to retry and she never responded. It's been over two weeks and I haven't received a rejection email or any response at all. Very disappointing for me. I would have loved to have a fair shot for the position.

    Interview

    Interview was online and pre recorded questions will appear. firstly write questions appear asking General profile, later interviewer recorded behavioural questions will appear. the interview process was very unfamiliar. We need to have good internet facility. Automatically the videos are very slowly recorded. That was the main treason fit my denial.

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    The first interview was strictly behavioral. They asked about why I wanted to be an electrical engineer and then why I would be a good candidate for the job. Really nice interviewer but failed to know some technical knowledge. Second interview they asked about rectifiers as a technical question.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was online and was about thirty minutes long. They asked about six questions and they required a video response the question were straight forward. There were issues with the recording process you get two attempts to answer one question and they will always choose the second attempt and it feels very unnatural to speak to a camera.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell (Omaha, NE) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was only given 2 days advanced notice about the interview which was the only negative part of the experience. I went to an on campus interview and really enjoyed the person from HR who interviewed me. It lasted 20-30 minutes and I left with a smile on my face feeling like I was seriously being considered and not that I had just wasted my time. I didn't get the position but was sent a personalized e-mail letting me know that they will keep my information on record and that I was the type of person they do want to hire in the future. This left a great impression on me about how much this company does care.

    Interview

    It was pretty nice. They paid for my travel to the office. Sat down in a room with four people from the office and they just discussed my resume. No crazy or unexpected questions. Everything was very straightforward and I just told them about myself.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straight forward. It begins with an online application and then you have an online interview. The first ten questions are basic fill in questions. Then it is followed by 6 behavioral questions. They were pretty standard.
